Look Hughes Talking
By Tim Stanton & Anthony Armentano
About this podcast
Welcome to Look Hughes Talking. We're two Los Angeles based comedians, Tim and Anthony, and we want to talk to you about Hughes...John Hughes! Join the two of us, weekly, as we travel through Hughes' angst filled body of work. We'll cover everything he's written or directed, from classics like Pretty in Pink, to forgotten adventures like Nate and Hayes. Spoilers will run rampant, so be sure to watch the movies along with us, or don't! Just remember, life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and listen to our podcast once in a while, you could miss it.

We've watched the good, we've watched the bad, we've watched them both, and now we have been generating a podcast for a year, and we thought we did pretty good, we hope you thought so too,  so thank you for listening!

Actor Christopher Douglas Reed is our guest for the final Hughes' movie, Drillbit Taylor (Owen Wilson, Nate Hartley, Ian Roberts, Troy Gentile, David Koechner, Leslie Mann, Matt Walsh, Lisa Lampanelli, Josh Peck, Danny McBride, Cedric Yarbrough, Stephen Root). The show opens with a short chat about the state of San Diego sports. Later, Anthony uncovers the fact that half the film was shot at local coffee chains, Tim talks about body hair, and Chris wants you to use his MeUndie promo code. A special guest (Darren Hayes) pops in...who could it be? (Darren Hayes)? Adam Baldwin and Chuck Liddell join Hughes alum, Frank Whaley for a cameo bonanza, Bueller gets referenced, and Tim pleasures zombies. John Hughes' favorite slur returns. Enjoy! Last Hughes Movie! We'll be back with the gathering of a lifetime.

Maid in Manhattan (Jennifer Lopez, Ralph Fiennes, Natasha Richardson, Stanley Tucci, Tyler Posey, Frances Conroy, Amy Sedaris, Marissa Matrone, Bob Hoskins) is our movie of the week, when we watch the second to last Edmond Dantes film. The guys talk about pepperoni, strange extras, and Tim has some suggestions for J. Lo's hair. Chris and Anthony questionably recreate a missing scene, and we find out that a job in management is practically unattainable. Anthony remembers the one time he attended a high school, film award ceremony. Some call us the state assemblyman of podcasts, some call us, "too young".

Tim's 16-year-old cousin, James, stops by for a podcast about the Ed Helms and Christina Applegate led Vacation (Skylar Gisando, Steele Stebbins, Chris Hemsworth, Leslie Mann, Beverly D'Angelo, Chevy Chase, Charlie Day, Ron Livingston, John Francis Daley) continuation. We don't spoil this one for you since it's still in theaters, so SAFE LISTENING AHEAD! We talk about the current state of bullying in high school, Anthony talks about the current state of Linda Cardellini, and Sigmund Freud pops in to give some much needed analysis. Adam Scott Aukerman may have snagged a big fish when U2 visited U Talkin' U2 To Me? last week, but someone equally important to our show visits us from beyond the grave.

The guys dust off the old VCR to welcome comedian and actress, Julie Birke, to the show for a movie they wish never existed, Reach the Rock (William Sadler, Alessandro Nivola, Brooke Langton, Norman Reedus). Time doesn't just stop during Hughes' last 90s venture, it dies. Julie and Anthony talk about Scream. Julie and Anthony talk about Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Julie and Anthony talk about Friends. Tim listens patiently. Tread lightly, because "spoiler alert", we spoil everything. And remember to shed those layers when you go for your inebriated, midnight swims.

Anthony starts the show off in a drive time fashion to welcome their guest, Chris Kleckner. In honor of this years' Ed Helms and Christina Applegate Vacation reboot, the guys watch the last of the original Griswold adventures, Vegas Vacation (Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, Randy Quaid, Ethan Embry, Marisol Nichols, Wallace Shawn, Sid Caesar, Wayne Newton, Jerry Weintraub, Christie Brinkley, Miriam Flynn, Julia Sweeney). Anthony shares a dark fantasy of his, Darren remembers the days he had to slum it at the Mirage, and Chris channels Sid Caesar. Tim Stanton shows up in various forms, plus Anthony and Chris share stories of being underage in Vegas. The guys talk about the delicate art of drinking via straw. A long forgotten Republica song is welcomed with open arms.

As Just Visiting comes to a close, the guys discuss everything from Peter Schilling's Major Tom (Coming Home) to Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? contrinutors, Rockapella. Tim tells us where mints originated, Bowie humor is the best, and Tara Reid is perfectly cast. Darren's livelihood is saved by a deleted recording, and Bill Cosby find his way into the conversation, yet again. Tim asks the question, "What's with Prince and colors?" As the episode comes to a close, one of the guys is sad that he'll miss out on Vegas Vacation.

Darren opens the show with an in-depth analysis of the comic relief in Star Wars, then does an impression of a beloved Princess Bride character. It's safe to say, Tim loves Just Visiting (Jean Reno, Christina Applegate, Christian Clavier, Tara Reid, Malcolm McDowell, George Plimpton, Bridgette Wilson, Matt Ross), the other two, not so much. The French language is butchered, a Tone Loc beef is settled, and one of the hosts is related to a Muppet. Later, Tim Tebow's fire still burns bright, and there's a much needed VeggieTales breakdown. Anthony begins writing the next French disco hit. The show closes with foreskin chat.
